This is not the type of series I’d usually watch. From the preview I just figured it was another one of those high school type of movies. It kinda was, but this one was actually pretty good….to me. This series is basically about three students who go to the same high school. One girl is the popular girl, one is the “loner” type, and to round out the trio, you have one girl who is the new student at the school who has no friends. Three very different types of people who you would think have nothing at all in common……until they discover that all three of them is in a program for people who have a shoplifting addiction. The 1st season is about 10 episodes. It’s a pretty good show. Worth checking out…..in my opinion. Trinkets is currently playing on Netflix. Check out the trailer below:

According to DEA officials in DC, the latest count for the seizure stands at 34,341 pounds. A little over 17 tons of cocaine. Authorities are still adding up the amount of cocaine seized in the raid before an “official” number is determined. That number will likely be announced at a press conference scheduled to be held on Wednesday afternoon.
Action News Philly (@6abc) reported, the cargo ship carrying the cocaine was headed from Chile to Europe, when the drugs were found in Philadelphia. Authorities received a tip about the huge shipment coming into the city on Monday night. The cocaine was discovered inside eight containers on the cargo ship, according to sources.
The ship’s journey began in Chile, before making a stop in Peru and the Bahamas. From there, the ship made its way to Philadelphia. According to the Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District Of Pennsylvania, the ship’s final destination was Europe, with a stop in Rotterdam. So far, it’s unclear where the ship was planning to unload the huge shipment of cocaine.
U.S. Attorney William McSwain tweeted “This is one of the largest drug seizures in United States history.” Members of the ship’s crew were arrested and charged federally. Two of the ship’s crew allegedly admitted to taking part in loading the cocaine from 14 separate boats while the ship was already in route at sea. Authorities say this is the largest seizure of cocaine in the history of the Eastern District Of Pennsylvania.
What do you think authorities do with this much drugs? I know the official “good citizen” line is that “they burn the drugs.” But, what do you really think a country who’s always crying about how much debt they’re carrying would do with over $1 billion worth of cocaine? I know what I’d do……..
This is my favorite show currently on television. I don’t know what my second favorite show is, but I know that #2 is not even close. What I like most about this show is that the writers took their time in building up to Franklin’s rise to power. The first season was about Franklin to get in the game. The second season was about Franklin learning the game. I expect this season to be about Franklin excelling in the game before his eventual downfall. Check out the trailer for season 3 of Snowfall coming to FX July 10th:

What more could a fan of the game ask for? This one had all of the drama that one would expect out of their favorite soap opera. Down 3-1 with their backs against the wall, it’s reported that Warriors superstar, Kevin Durant would be suiting up and playing in this elimination game. Durant goes out there looking like his old self early in the game, and everybody knows Toronto doesn’t stand a chance. KD gets hurt. The Warriors look shell-shocked, meanwhile, the Raptors are smelling blood in the water. The Raptors come back to take the lead late in the 4th quarter. Everyone (myself included) thinks that the Raptors late come back has taken all of the fight out of the tired and defeated looking defending champs. Led by Curry, Thompson, and Green, the Warriors show the world what “the heart of a champion” looks like. It would be hard to script a dramatic television series better than the sh*t that took place up there in Canada last night. Outside of Durant’s injury, and some Raptors fans despicable reaction to his injury, last night’s NBA Finals elimination game was one for the record books. There was so much drama and ups and downs for both teams in this game. I honestly thought KD’s injury would be enough to make the Warriors want to pack it up and get ready for summer vacation. It may turn out that KD’s injury will be the thing that woke the sleeping giants. We’ll see what happens in game-6 back in Oakland. In the meantime, here are some of the highlights from last night’s thriller:
